Enthralled by the village festa

Village festas are the thing to do when in Malta. We chose to visit Għargħur, a local village whose wiki entry sounded interesting.




The patron saint of Għargħur is St Bartholomew and the festa seemed to be a mix of hymn singing, bell ringing, fireworks, tennis court sized flags, a marching band and a procession carrying a statue of the patron saint.
